Our project managers are Chartered Engineers who are skilled and experienced at managing projects. Although we operate as independent resources, we work in full alignment with our clients, acting to fulfill their goals and protect their interests.

Our experience in engineering, project management, operational management and continuous improvement provides us with an ideal skillset to manage projects on behalf of clients. Below are two short videos which give an introduction and overview of Client-side Project Management.

Introduction to Client-side Project Management

Client-side Project Management - How it works


We can manage all aspects of project delivery and will get involved in at different phases of a project’s lifecycle:

Project Feasibility

We will join projects at the feasibility stage, conducting and coordinating feasibility studies, initial cost estimates, concept generation and initial design activities. Early stakeholder engagement is important at this stage to ensure all interests are properly understood, so that initial scope and benefits quantification can be fully completed to support the preparation of the business case for the project.

Project Planning

In this phase, detailed planning for the project is conducted. Scope is further clarified with cost, time and quality deliverables clearly defined and aligned to the business case. Project planning includes the following:

  • creation of work breakdowns
  • devising the packaging strategy
  • identifying interdependencies and key interfaces
  • selecting the project team and defining roles
  • communication and stakeholder management strategies
  • contracting strategy
  • risk identification and mitigation
  • cost and programme planning

Upon completion of this phase, a project execution plan is agreed with the Project Sponsor.

Design development

In this phase, the concept design is developed further. It is important that user requirements are properly communicated and captured in the design. Outputs from this phase include design documentation, layout and space fits, updated costings and risk review. Depending on the complexity of the project, this phase might be split between Concept Design and Developed Design with stage gates to govern transition between them. 


Supplier identification, compiling requests for quotations (RFQ), tendering, bid evaluation and selection, and supporting clients in contractual negotiations form part of this phase.

Project execution

Project execution involves the monitoring and controlling of project activities against the agreed baseline for cost, time and quality deliverables. Issue resolution and risk management are important responsibilities of the project manager during this phase. Contract administration, progress reporting and execution of the communication plan are also performed as agreed for the project.  The Project Sponsor and key stakeholders are kept informed and consulted as required.

Commissioning & Qualification

The complexity of the project, and the environment in which it is executed, will determine the activities required in this phase. Commissioning will be performed in accordance with good engineering practice. Should the client’s quality management system require formal qualification and validation, these will be performed. Ultimately, the aim of this phase is to illustrate fulfillment of the user requirements defined earlier in the project. Smooth handover between the project team and the long term owners of the assets are crucial to enable a full benefits realisation following closeout of the project.

Project closeout and benefits realisation

Projects are undertaken to create beneficial change. Throughout the execution lifecycle, project leadership should never lose sight of this. Although benefits realisation is a role which traditionally sits with the Project Sponsor, we maintain focus on this end goal throughout the project lifecycle, and will navigate the handover phase to help the client make full use of the delivered results. Formal project closeout is conducted to celebrate success, and to document lessons for future reference.
